Bookish News: 10 Queer SFF Books I’m Excited For in 2024 (Part 1)

Guess what's back... back... back... Back again... 'gain... 'gain... It's queer sci-fi/fantasy books I'm excited for! That's what's back back back!

Gamer Musings: Top Ten Games I Played in 2023

I have spent a lot of time this year playing games. They've been a great distraction from the struggles of real life, and they're also just fun and pretty and interesting! So these are my favorite games that I either started or finished or both this year (no repeats from previous years).
